General Motors Offers Green Options for Business Fleets

Fleet owners have additional choices to make their vehicles more sustainable and environmentally friendly:

* Fuel efficiency: GM offers 12 models with EPA-estimated 30 miles per gallon highway ratings that use innovative engine advancements like Active Fuel Management to deactivate cylinders and Spark Ignition Direct Injection. For example, the new Chevrolet Cruze Eco model featuring a 1.4L turbo engine is expected to get up to 40 MPG highway when it goes on sale in early 2011.

* Flex-fuel vehicles: GM offers more flex-fuel vehicles than any manufacturer with 19 models that run on up to 85 percent ethanol and 15 percent gasoline or any combination of the two. GM is on track to make more than half of its vehicle production flex-fuel capable by 2012.

* Hybrids: GM offers the only hybrid pickup trucks in the market—the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra. An additional four hybrid models accompany the pickups – the Cadillac Escalade, Chevrolet Tahoe, GMC Yukon and GMC Yukon Denali Hybrids.
